Kidonitsa White PGI Laconia 2015, Monemvasia Estate

Tasting Note

Vibrant yellow green, tropical fruits and quince on the nose, which follow through pleasantly onto the palate, excellent balance, crisp with a fairly long finish.

Producer Note

The appellation of origin Malvasia is refered to the Byzantine city of Monemvasia whose name was also given by the Franks to its wine. The vineyards were located at Dorieon Chora the region of the countryside of Epidavros Limiras which was a favourable environment for the vineyard cultivation. The mild coastal climate in combination with the terrain made up the exceptional features which gave a unique quality to the wines of Malvasia. This is where Malvasia was made prior to the 13th century when the local traders loaded it onto the ships from the port of Monemvasia. In the Byzantine era, the economy of fortified cities such as Monemvasia was based on trade. After the 14th century, these cities gained significant privileges and traded freely in all major trading centres.
